Just for fun: Body Count Icebreaker

Friday 17th February 2017

This icebreaker is great game to build coordination, attention and, getting the group going. Above all, though, it’s really good fun!


1. You will need at least 4 people to play this game.

2. Have the participants pair up.

3. Ask them to count from one to three – alternating, repeatedly, and out loud. Example: Person one counts “one”, Person two counts “two”, Person one counts “three”, Person two counts “one” and so on…

4. After 30 seconds or so, stop the game and tell the participants to count to three again, but this time, whenever one player used to count “one”, he or she should instead clap their hands.

5. Wait another 30 seconds, then ask them to replace counting “two” with jumping. After another while, replace counting “three” with a gesture.

6. Continue the game for up to five minutes and gradually adding in different sounds, gestures and movements.
